In 2009 Republicans began winning these crucial state elections, and used those victories to begin moving the country far to the right. Ryan’s special election thus represents an opportunity for progressives to fight back and elect the champions we need. By electing progressive Democrats like Ryant Washington to local, state, and federal offices, the American people can show that the country opposes Trump and his party’s extremist, hateful agenda, and is ready to rebuild its leadership at the local level.
